Catching Summer Before It Slips Away

Here I was feeling safely ensconced in the middle of summer, thinking July would never end, and what happens? Someone on the radio starts talking about back to school already,  and the malaise of incomplete reading assignments creeps in. O and it's almost August- as in tomorrow. That leaves just a little more than 3 weeks of vacation for DC kids and only three Fort Reno concerts left in the season including tomorrow night. The bands are: Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Bomb, The Sniffs and Nervous Impulse.  Never heard of them? That might be because  Fort Reno is the only out door venue in DC I know of that showcases raw (sometimes never been near a frying pan) talent and attracts all ages from babies to seniors.  I was there last Monday with a gang of not so recent Wilson graduates whose rallying cry was "Why Not Fort Reno?" and I think they have a point.
